asked on split string and then check appropriate checkboxlist

I have a checkboxlist with 5 options, when saved it is in one database column, with each option seperated by a semi-colon, when the user goes back into the page to edit how do i take the value as a string and make sure it checks the right checkboxes in the list.

why not using 5 columns? you always will have troubles with this field and it violates 1NF (first normal form) without any benefit.
